Parelli Gadgets

Now, let me start off by saying this isn't an attack on NH or anything, I just am looking for an english saddle and came scross the fluidity saddles by parelli. (Pat Parelli Natural Horsemanship. Savvy shopping online) Check those out. Their english one is 4k and they have a roper saddle selling for 7k!! That's almost 3times the cost of my horse!

So the reviews sound great, but what do you guys think? Is it worth it? Are they really worth this much?
Anyone have one?

Uh.. I guess if they're selling them... kudos?

My opinion? Go buy a better saddle somewhere else. Think Stubben (english) or Experience Leather (western.) Don't waste your money with these "Parelli inside!" saddles... although that still cracks me up!

Psh, my butet was less than that. It's got a really deep seat and long flaps... rather odd shaped.

I still think a fool and their money are easily parted.:roll:

Hah. At least Im not the only one who thinks those prices are highly unreasonable. I really think you are just paying for the name....

Even if I had 5 grand to drop on a saddle....No way!

Personally, if I had 4k to spend on a saddle I'd buy theirs. It's well made and definitely a good saddle quality wise. It's made to put you on your balance point and maybe to be comfortable for the horse.

I'm sorry but I have to say that is WAYY to high for a saddle. I was at a centered riding clinic this fall and they instructor was saying how UNpredutive (SP) they are; The parreli method (I have nothing against it In fact I'm doing it with my horses) is trying so hard to get the horse comfy that there putting the saddle almost on there butt which to control the horse your in a wicked chair seat position. Sorry if i'm coming in a little rudly, JMO .

There's nothing wrong with a chair seat just doesn't look pretty nor is it part of normal equitation, equitation is only to make the person look "pretty" on the horse, it doesn't have anything to do with balance. When I ride, I have a chair seat...yet I can ride out anything a horse throws at me

See, I think there is plenty wrong with a chair seat. I think that you have much better balance and cues when riding with a proper seat. But that's just me. I don't understand why you would prefer a chair seat. To me it it sloppy and not as efficient. I don't mean that to be an attack on you, Sonny. Just my opinion. :)

No you're not trying to attack me. I guess each has their own position on the saddle that they think is more secure.
